European Games: ÖOC doubles silver in KK mixed triples

Schilyn Waibel of Vorarlberg and Andreas Thom of Tyrol took home the 14th medal for Austria at the European Games in Poland on Wednesday. The ÖOC duo won the silver medal in the three-place mixed team event. In the battle for gold in Wroclaw, Waibel / Thom had to concede defeat to the Swiss Nina Christen / Jan Lochbeler with a score of 10:16 points. Austria currently has five gold, three silver and six bronze medals.

Waibel was very satisfied. “It was a great day. We shot really well in the first round, did well in the second and also managed great in the final. Unfortunately we didn’t score some points at a very high level. It’s a shame it wasn’t enough for gold.” , but we are happy with the silver. Thom was happy too. “Second place is very good and when you look at those in front of us, the place deserves more.”

For Thom it was the second medal of the European Games. The Tyroleans had already finished third in the men’s 10m (air rifle) team event with Alexander Schmerl and Martin Strempfl. Schmerl of Lower Austria also won the bronze medal in the men’s 50m singles event from three positions (small caliber), giving the Austrian shooters three podium finishes to date.

On Thursday, the ÖSB men’s and women’s teams will start in the KK three-place team competition. In addition, the first two halftime programs will be carried out using the men’s 25-meter rapid-fire pistol.
